Cucumber Dal is one of my favourite dal variety. I like cucumber when we use it in dal or raitha.  My MIL makes cucumber stew with coconut and moongdal and it would tastes so delicious.It tastes dainty and cucumber dal is one of the perfect accompaniment for roti / chapati. Even I love to mix paruppu podi with cucumber dal and mix with rice. Instead of making plain dal, cucumber with thoor dal is one of the rich combination. The preparation of the cucumber dal is same as plain dal, so it would be one of the simplest and tastiest dish for any Indian Bread..

  1. I tried it this a couple of days back. Easy and fast to make and tastes good. Today substituted cucumber with ridge gourd (peerkangai) and it came out good. Thanks a lot for the recipe.
